    Hello all. I'm planning out an 8-string bass and I'm exploring my options for the pickup and preamp.

    I want a single MM style pickup. Right now I'm looking at Bartonlini and Seymour Duncan because they are blade style.

    Preamp is a different story. My top three choices are Demeter, 3-band Bartolini or Seymour Dunan.

    Any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated....
